On the West Side Road is the grave site of Frank "Shorty" Harris, probably the most prolific Death Valley prospector. He is buried alongside Jim Dayton, an early caretaker of Furnace Creek (Greenland)Ranch. There is a stone monument erected by the CCC in the 1930s over their dual graves.

The link below takes you to an essay I published in the Beatty Historical Society Newsletter and that I've put up on my website with additional photos.
